Since so many people loved the idea the first time around, let's try it again!
Those who have nice sized music collections might have fun doing this. The job is to find songs that fit at least 15 of the categories below and put them on a CD. Don't repeat a category (unless you want to make a second CD, of course). You must use at least 15 different categories for this (although you're always welcome to make another CD and repeat categories from the first one!). You can use more than 15 categories on a CD, but you have to use at least that many.
Make sure to let your partner know which category each song fits into! And please do let them know the artist and title of the song, just in case they love it enough to want more!
You'll have two partners for this, and it's international since CDs aren't that expensive to send even internationally.
The categories are:
1 Song from an unusual perspective
2 Song that could be interpreted as both/either happy and/or sad
3 Song that brings back a childhood memory
4 Song with a colour in the title
5 Song about your country
6 Song about young love
7 Song for which you really love the video
8 Song from anyone who was an American Idol contestant (or Australian Idol, or whatever one your country might have)
9 Song about a real person, living or dead (specific person)
10 Song that inspires you
11 Song about something you love to do
12 Song about an inanimate object
13 Song that mentions a geographical landmark (mountain, ocean, etc)
14 Song that was recorded by someone besides that artist first
15 Song about/related to/mentioning any weather
16 Sweet Song
17 Song about an historical event
18 Song by an unknown/little known/or defunct artist
19 Song by an artist who is now dead
20 Song you grew up with
21 Song that was played at an important event in your life
22 Spooky song
23 Song with some form of sound effect (thunder, rain, etc)
24 Song that can lull you to sleep
25 Song from a TV show
It's been suggested to me, and I think it's a good suggestion, that people try to explain why they chose certain songs for each category. It's not required, but it'd be nice!
Just so people know, copying tracks off of iTunes can sometimes make it difficult for things to be heard in certain stereos. I've found that this happens sometimes with me and it doesn't with others, so I thought I'd just warn you that if you do that, your partner might not get to hear the music!
